Featured Event


Room 700 Leeds Central Library. Wednesday 5 July 2017 6pm until 7:30pm

Join Professor Kuczynski of Tulane University, New Orleans, for a fascinating look at the life and work of Thomas Wilson (c. 1702-1761), the little known Leeds Schoolmaster and Antiquarian. The hard, laborious work of men such as Wilson was often produced at the request of the more famous Antiquarians of the period. Professor Kuczynski believes "these busy individuals deserve their own chapter in the history of medieval studies".
